Sighs, sifting through old trash
whistles for you to follow
and you do, almost unaware
he’s leading you back home
origins – water, though you can’t swim
and you’re back.
Heart slowly starts to fill, warmth
increases – proportionate to your escalating heartbeat.
Sighs. Now do you see why I brought you here?
Eyes wet, you nod,
and jump in.
Does it matter that the water closes over your head?
One thought on “Sighs”
“Loving, happy, short. Musical, moody, sarcastic. Smart, easily entertained, energetic. Lazy, hardworking, yellow. Why not?”
-What a great description. I look forward to reading more of your work.
